After reading some of the reviews we were dreading staying here but were pleasantly surprised.The location is the best in the resort, a 2 minute walk to the beautiful beach, the old town can be reached in a slow 30 min stroll by beach or by the courtesy bus 3 times daily, around 10, 12 and 4. The strip is 5 minutes away up the hill. We arrived on 13/07/2011 and stayed for 2 weeks on a bed and breakfast basis. I'll get the bad points out of the way, I have a terrible fear of cockroaches and on my first day 5 tiny roaches came out of the grill on the side of the bath, I reported this to reception and was assured they would deal with it, I didn't see another one during my stay. The resort in general has a problem with mosquitoes, I was badly bitten although there were 2 cans of insect spray in the room, if you are staying best bring a plug in device. We stayed in room 314 block A.Yes the rooms need updating but the grounds and facilities more than make up for this, the grounds are beautiful, the main outside pool is huge and not cold, there is a heated pool indoors , kiddies pool, small gym and sauna. Also tennis courts, table tennis, 2 pool tables, gaming machines, internet access ( wifi is not free) and childrens play area. We had one room with 3 single beds, ample storage, satellite tv a great fridge with an ice box, bathroom had shower, bath toilet and bidet. All rooms have a balcony, the balconies are fairly private and all have furniture, a small extendable washing rail attached. Although our room overlooked the entertainment area, we saw this as a bonus, the entertainment was good, the staff rehearse during the day and it is good family entertainment starting with the man on keyboards, he's quite good, bingo then the show different theme each night, eg magic show, animal show, musicals this is followed by the music again, there is also the kiddies disco. We also had a great view of the sea. Rooms are cleaned every day, towels changed daily and bed linen changed twice weekly. All staff were pleasant, there was no smell in reception, the place is spotless. Breakfast was dead on, 6 cereals, melon and lots of fresh whole fruit, 4 juices, water, tea coffee, hot choc, capuchinno, expresso etc, continental breakfast choices, fried eggs and bacon one day, scrambled eggs and frankfurter style sausages the next, chips and garlic bread daily. There was also cake, sugar free biscuits and other biscuits. and a good bread selection. Lunches looked good, but we opted to eat out at the nearby Cinneasta caffe as great value for food and drink and worth a visit. Yes we would definately return . ( ages 48, 45 & 15). Would appreciate a kettle in the room and music by the pool otherwise very happy!
